International Science Center and Science Museum Day

The International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) is a yearly, global event illustrating the impact and reach of all the world’s science centers and science museums. It demonstrates the role these institutions play with their millions of visitors in raising awareness of—and engagement in—sustainable development and the solutions to worldwide challenges such as climate change, human health (HIV/AIDS, Zika, clean water, etc.), energy, waste, water shortages, gender, oceans, and other global issues.
